The home should be a space in which we are able to continually discover new things and expose ourselves to the beauty of nature and the outdoors.
Working with the client to devise a concept, it was clear from the outset that having a feeling of expanse and exposing communal areas to the outdoors as much as possible was very important.
Using a large 3-metre skylight lines the communal space, casting indirect light into the central body of the dining area.
Integrating three different tones of Petersen brick we were able to create calming and grounding palette that settles the eye while moving through the space.
In addition to encouraging as much natural light as possible, we also wanted to have an element of weightlessness in the space, so we chose to conceal window frames as much as possible. Through considered detailing we were able to create an illusion of floating glass panels, hiding much of the frame from view.
Crafted with an attention to detail, the house provides a grounding setting on which family life can play out.
